Hope for Hemangiosarcoma

SUMMARY: Mushroom extract.

This news is a year old, but still worth a read. A compound that has been used for 2,000 years in traditional chinese medicine has more than doubled the average survival time of dogs with hemangiosarcoma. I can only hope that continuing research bears this out so that others won't have to go through what I went through with Remington and so many other friends have been through with their dogs.

Compound Derived From a Mushroom Lengthens Survival Time in Dogs With Cancer, Penn Vet Study Finds

The next big thing would be an easy way to detect the cancer early--so many dogs are diagnosed by autopsy or at the time of collapse. Keeping my fingers crossed for that.
